TODAY AT GRACE
It’s ZOO DAYS at DISCOVERY KIDZ! This week: It’s all about
the Elephant. Elephants are strong creatures but as strong as they
are, they are stronger together. They move in herds to protect their
own. We are stronger when we unite together as believers, but when
one goes astray, they become vulnerable to attack from the outside!
Memory Verse this week: “How good and pleasant it is
when God’s people live together in unity.” Psalm 133:1
THE MINISTRY OF MUSIC today is presented by Ruth Tacoma and
her daughter and granddaughters, Janet, Ellie & Mandy Dekkinga.
Thank you all so much for sharing with us today.
